This smoothie has many memories for me. When I was at uni studying nutrition, carob banana smoothies were my all time favourite fast breakfast. I could quickly make this before dashing out for the day, and drink it on the go. I am pretty sure this smoothie got me through my degree!

From a health perspective, carob (and banana to a lesser degree) are awesome for the digestive system, and contains a truck load of healthy minerals. So this smoothie is not only delicious, but super satisfying, with lots of goodness for the body to soak up.

INGREDIENTS (SERVES 2)

2 frozen bananas

2 tbsp hulled tahini

1⁄2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tbsp carob powder

2 tbsp raw honey

500ml almond milk

2 tsbp sesame seeds, to serve

Pinch of ground cinnamon, to serve

METHOD

Place the bananas, tahini, cinnamon, carob powder, raw honey and almond milk in the blender. Process until smooth, pour into glasses and top with sesame seeds and cinnamon.

Note: When it comes to smoothies I often prefer to add hulled tahini so the flavour isn’t too overpowering, but you can use unhulled if you don’t mind the strong taste and want the extra fibre and nutrients.
